"The Rains of Castamere" Round-Up: Paying the Price for Honor and Love

“Just as you grieve if a friend is killed, you should grieve if a fictional character is killed,” author George R.R. Martin tells Entertainment Weekly about the grisly ‘Game of Thrones’ event known by book readers as the Red Wedding. In interviews with HBO.com, actors Michelle Fairley and Richard Madden share the grief they felt while filming the scene. “It’s incredibly emotional,” Fairley says, “We had a week to shoot the whole sequence, and we shot it chronologically so throughout the week, you knew we were coming to the end." Madden adds, “We went into that scene with heavy hearts.”  

The tides change for the Starks in attendance the moment the band begins to play “The Rains of Castamere,” the song commemorating the Lannister slaughter of a rebellious house. Richard Madden tells HBO.com that the sudden tragedy “is one of the best things that ‘Game of Thrones' does so beautifully, which is just rip these characters' hearts out in front of you.”

Michelle Fairley Loved the Red Wedding

This season's major turning point – the wedding day massacre at the Twins – also happens to be Michelle Fairley's favorite scene of the past three seasons. The actress talks to HBO.com about filming the scene, Cat's issues with Jon Snow, and why she's always making those prayer wheels.

HBO: What was going through Cat's mind when the "Rains of Castamere" starts to play?

Michelle Fairley:  I remember shooting that and having to turn. She's thinking, "What is this music?" It says something ominous to her, like something has walked over her grave; her hackles are up. But she doesn't know what it is because she's an honorable human being. The last thing on her mind is that Walder Frey would use this occasion to seek his revenge.
